Just in case you might think of Iraq as "only" an oil rich nation, ruled by an evil dictator for 30 years, whether it has been supporting terrorists or may not be very important, here are a few important facts regarding the important history and roles that this nation has played down through history*
 
IRAQ -- VERY INTERESTING -- DID YOU KNOW?Huh??
 
1. The garden of Eden was in Iraq. (it sure doesn't look much like Paradise on earth today thanks to Saddam)
 
2. Mesopotamia which is now Iraq was the cradle of civilization!
 
3. Noah built the ark in Iraq.
 
4. The Tower of Babel was in Iraq.
 
5. Abraham was from Ur, which is in Southern Iraq!
 
6. Isaac's wife Rebekah is from Nahor which is in Iraq.
 
7. Jacob met Rachel in Iraq.
 
8. Jonah preached in Nineveh - which is in Iraq.
 
9. Assyria which is in Iraq conquered the ten tribes of Israel.
 
10. Amos cried out in Iraq!
 
11. Babylon which is in Iraq destroyed Jerusalem.
 
12. Daniel was in the lion's den in Iraq!
 
13. The 3 Hebrew children were in the fire in Iraq (that's good news to know that JESUS has been in Iraq too as the 4th person in the fiery furnace!)
 
14. Belshazzar, the King of Babylon saw the "writing on the wall" in Iraq.
(which hopefully Saddam will too!)
 
15. Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, carried the Jews captive into Iraq.
 
16. Ezekiel preached in Iraq.
 
17. The wise men were from Iraq. (where are the "wise" men today?)
 
18. Peter preached in Iraq.
 
19. The "Empire of Man" described in Revelation is called Babylon which was a city in Iraq!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And you have probably seen this one. Israel is the nation most often mentioned in the Bible.  But do you know which nation is second?  It is Iraq!  However, that is not the name that is used in the Bible.  The names used in the Bible are Babylon, Land of Shinar, and Mesopotamia. The word Mesopotamia means between the two rivers, more exactly between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. The name Iraq, means country with deep roots. Indeed Iraq is a country with deep roots and is a very significant country in the Bible.  Here's why.
 
* Eden was in Iraq--Genesis 2:10-14
* Adam & Eve were created in Iraq--Genesis 2:7-8
* Satan made his first recorded appearance in Iraq--Genesis 3:1-6
* Nimrod established Babylon & Tower of Babel was built in Iraq-- Genesis
10:8-97  &  11:1-4
* The confusion of the languages took place in Iraq--Genesis
11:5-11
* Abraham came from a city in Iraq--Genesis 11:31 & Acts 7:2-4
* Isaac's bride came from Iraq--Genesis 24:3-4 & 10
* Jacob spent 20 years in Iraq--Genesis 27:42-45 & 31:38
* The first world Empire was in Iraq--Daniel 1:1-2 &2:36-38
* The greatest revival in history was in a city in Iraq--Jonah 3
* The events of the book of Esther took place in Iraq--Esther
* The book of Nahum was a prophecy against a city in Iraq--Nahum
* The book or Revelation has prophecies against Babylon, which was the old name for the nation of Iraq--Revelation 17 & 18
 
No other nation, except Israel, has more history and prophecy associated with it than Iraq

Very Good, A4C

I am not posting this to argue about it, but the Garden which the Lord planted was eastward of Eden.

I know we all grew up, being taught the the Garden of Eden was in Eden, however the scriptures say it was EASTWARD OF EDEN.(Gen 2:Cool

Would esatward of Eden still be Eden??

And, Eden is defined as a place where, ONE river went out of and parted into the head rivers of 4 others, of which two are presently known, the Tigris on the east, and the Euphartes, west of the Tigris (Gen 2:10)

And when Adam and Eve were driven from the Garden, they were driven to the east of Eden,

Where would this be??

How do I know this?  Because God set a Cherubim and a flaming sword at the EAST of the garden. Presumably to keep them away from the Tree of Life.

Then, we read at Gen 4:16, Cain went out to Nod, after he murdered his brother Able, this place was EAST of Eden.

Depending on how big  the land of Eden was, would depend on where the Garden was in reality, using just some plain logic, one would expect it to have been eastward of the river Euphrates , which could very well be where the nations of Syria, Iraq and Turkey exist today, assuming the the course of the Euphrates has not moved very far, one way or the other.

Nevertheless, the land where Iraq is today, is a desolate place a dry and thirsty land, where hardly anything grows, and yet it has all the water necessary for it to be a land flowing with milk and honey.

Yet God has not forsaken it, since it rains there too..


Blessings,
Petro

I was looking at some ancient bible time maps and came across something interesting.   In Gen 17:8 God promises Abraham all the land of Canaan for everlasting posession.  Looking at some classic bible maps that I have, Canaan covers what we currently know as Israel today, and has a small swath that stretches all the way through Part of Jordan, into Damascus Syria, up into Northern Iraq, almost all the way to Iran!  Surely God will keep his promise to Abraham and all that land will be Israel's at some point.

I didn't realize all this land was part of God's promise to his people.   Neat stuff!

Grace and Peace!

The world or the earth was a very different place at the time of the Garden of Eden.  The major differences were:- 1) all the continents as we know them were joined together in one land mass and were not divided until after the flood Gen 10:25.  This could mean that what was east of Eden then could now be in any direction.   The Sahara desert was lush, green and fertile at one time, so maybe that was Eden.  

 2)  there was no weather or climate as we know it and man was protected from the sun by the water barrier in the atmosphere.  Hence they were able to live to far greater ages than us.  The Dinosaurs roamed the earth with man at that time.  It was only after the flood that they died out.

Do you have a problem with the creation narrative?  ie. that the earth was created in one week.

With respect, it is not helpful to put down what someone says without countering with a constructive comment.

Eg.  do you have an explanation for the incedible life spans of those pre-flood people?  

If you believe in a one week creation then where do the dinosaurs fit in.  As they did not exist before the creation.

How very confusing these replies are? Huh

Thanks,

You should have a pretty good idea from our discussions on the recently deleted forum.
